Like being on your own private yacht. Looking where you are going is much better than looking backwards or sideways. Great views every morning coming into different ports. Slight noise from the Cabaret, not a real problem as it is slight and shows don't run late. If you want to sleep late pick another room as anchoring/docking noise could wake you up.

The Royal Suite/Club Ocean Suite (RS)7005 was comparable to a 1 BR suite in a traditional Ritz-Carlton class of property. Rooms were spacious, the balcony was fantastic, and concerns about wind across the balcony while at sea are completely dependent on wind direction across the bow. Several days the prevailing winds cancelled out the ship's motion, making these wrap-around forward-facing balconies the best at sea. Read entire member review.
Our suite # 8061 was on deck 8 towards the rear of the ship. The closet was very spacious and there were plenty of hangers for our 22 day cruise. The balcony was spacious with three chairs and a good sized table for meals. Being beneath the restaurant on deck 9, we could hear the occasional moving of furniture but it never disturbed our sleep. The flat screen TV was in a good location and the desk had adequate drawers.
